A meteor streaking through the night sky is located with radar. At point A its coordinates are (5.60 km, 1.40 km, and 1.10 s later its has moved to point B with coordinates (6.12 km, 0.900 km).

Find the magnitude of its average velocity between these two points

2. Relevant equations

none really

3. The attempt at a solution

I found the vx to be 0.473 km/s and vy to be -0.455 km/s. From this I took average velocity of the magnitude to be y/x to be -0.455/0.473. But the answer is wrong. Am I on the right track or am i doing it completely wrong? Please Help! Thanks
